  • Franck Muller, A Lady's White-Gold and Diamond-Set Tonneau Form Wristwatch Ref 1752 S6, No 78, Chronometro Circa 2000. Estimate $7,000–12,000.
    White gold and diamonds elevate this iconic Franck Muller Chronometro based on classic early-20th-century forms.

  • Chopard, A Lady's White-Gold, Mother-of-Pearl and Diamond-Set Bracelet Watch Ref 109171 4511.1, Circa 2000. Estimate $8,000–12,000.
    Combining a mother-of-pearl dial with radiating diamond rings, this Chopard bracelet watch is both elegant and expressive.

  • Georg Jensen, A Lady's Yellow Gold Bangle Watch, Case 0042, Vivianna Torun, Circa 1990. Estimate $5,000–7,000.
    Designed by Swedish silversmith and legendary jeweller Vivianna Torun for Georg Jensen, this bangle watch is one of the brand’s most iconic and classic designs, which sought to free the wearer from “the relentlessness of time.”

  • Patek Philippe, A Lady's White-Gold and Diamond-Set Wristwatch with Moon Phases Ref 4857, 2005. Estimate $10,000–15,000.
    Celebrated for their complicated wristwatches for men, Patek Philippe successfully introduced the reference 4857, a complicated women’s watch. The thoughtful, attractive placement of its subsidiary dials and apertures exemplifies Patek Philippe's mastery of proportions. 

  • Patek Philippe, A Very Fine Lady's White-Gold and Diamond-Set Bracelet Watch Ref 4910, 2011. Estimate $25,000–35,000.
    The Patek Philippe Twenty~4 launched in 1999 and quickly became synonymous with an active lifestyle. The reference 4910 fuses that same sportiness with an elegant case adorned with more than three carats of diamonds, creating a magnificent combination of everyday luxury.

  • Breguet, A Lady's Pink-Gold and Diamond-Set Oval Automatic Wristwatch with Mother-of-Pearl Dial Ref 8918, Reine de Naples, Circa 2011. Estimate $12,000–18,000.
    Breguet's Reine de Naples collection, fashioned after the famous watch created for Napoleon Bonaparte's sister, Caroline Murat, the Queen of Naples, is a true symbol of feminine refinement. Today the collection couples the firm's horological innovation with the elegance of contemporary jewellery. 

  • Patek Philippe, A Lady's Yellow-Gold Dual-Time Wristwatch Ref 4864, 1997. Estimate $8,000–12,000.
    Created to counter the larger 5034, the Patek Philippe reference 4864 allows the lady on the move to keep track of two different time zones.

  • Cartier, A Lady's Yellow-Gold and Diamond-Set Rectangular Bracelet Watch Tank, Louis Cartier, Circa 1995. Estimate $4,000–6,000.
    Cartier invented an icon when they introduced the original Tank watch in 1919, and the brand has continued to reinvigorate the almost-century-old design with flourishes, size differences and refinement.
